Results of the 1983-1984 Survey of Voluntary Support of Education are presented, including a narrative summary and detailed statistical tables. Reports of voluntary support are presented for 982 four-year colleges and universities, 136 two-year colleges, and 910 independent precollege schools. The tables for each institution cover: total financial support, support for current operations, support for specific capital purposes; and the sources of support (e.g., alumni, foundations, religious organizations). National estimates of voluntary support to higher education are provided by source for 1983-1984, 1982-1983, and 1978-1979. Data are included on voluntary support in relation to enrollment, inflation, and institutional expenditures for 1949, 1965, 1970, 1975, 1980, and 1983. Voluntary support for 1983-1984 is detailed by type of college/university and changes from the previous year, including contributions to the annual fund by alumni/donors. Also covered are: funding to different types of colleges through matching-gift programs and gifts of property; gifts donated for specific purposes; support with restrictions on its use; and gifts from individuals for current operations in the amount of "under $5,000" or "$5,000 or more."
